Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Blundell Park will host Saturday’s football game between Grimsby Town and Bradford City, the two teams who defeated Stockport County and Salford City respectively at the weekend. The Black and Whites are eyeing their third consecutive league win, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to watch in the home team will be experienced midfielder Gavan Holohan, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late.
The Bantams, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Stockport County, with the team beating Salford City thanks to Andy Cook’s goal, and, no doubt, they are eager to stay in the playoffs berth. Given Grimsby’s form in October, though, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Mark Hughes is unlikely to make changes to the team that faced the Lions at the weekend.
